Peter Sagan will miss the opening classics at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne next weekend

Bora-hansgrohe confirmed they do not want to take any risks with the three times WorldChampion, who was infected with the coronavirus in their training camp

Sagan tested positive during a team training camp in Gran Canaria, along with his brother Juraj and teammate Erik Baska who also tested positive.

The three Bora-hansgrohe riders quarantined for ten days, during which they were not allowed to ride outside. Now that his quarantine has finished, Sagan has remained in Gran Canaria to continue his training .

After a rider tests positive for COVID-19 the UCI mandates they conduct a series of health checks, including heart and lung tests, to monitor for any lingering effects of COVID-19.

It is unclear whether this is the reason Sagan will miss the Belgian races or if it is due to the missed training block.

Omloop Het Nieuwsblad is set to take place on February 27th, with Kuurne–Bruxelles–Kuurne scheduled for the following day, follow the races live on Gran Fondo Guide.
